I am going to look at a 1928 Model 81 5-passenger sedan tomorrow. It looks good in photographs and the owner says it is in good running condition. I have very little experience with cars this old and even less with Pierce Arrows, can anyone tell me how to verify if the engine is original? Are there ID numbers anywhere on the body and engine like newer cars and if so where are they located? I would also appreciate any general advice on what I should look for or any particular problems unique to these cars that could cause me trouble if I buy. Thanks for your help.

Don,

The s/n location is clearly shown at www.pierce-arrow.org Click on identification wizard on home page, look below s/n entry box and click on "where do I find s/n , scroll to series 81 and see photos. Expect to find a seven digit number beginning with 81.

The engine number is stamped on the right front engine mounting arm which is intregal with crankcase. Expect a number similar to, but not identical to the serial number.
